Energy Transition

About the partnership

The aim of the Partnership was to initiate and support a structural change in how energy systems operate by creating a far smarter and more integrated energy system, from a European level down to a local level, that is zero carbon and demand led. Our energy systems will be pro-active in how they use, manage, recover, and store energy so they no longer just default to increasing generating capacity to meet increasing energy demand.
